    I have to agree with you for the most part. Too many horrible days turking for me to believe otherwise. I am 100% sure the people throwing around big numbers have quals that are no longer available to others. Other than putting in a lot of hours, like just doing nothing but turking all day, there is no way it could compete with a minimum wage job ($8 in my state.) There have been a lot good batch hits the past couple weeks that have jaded people and left a false impression. Hopefully we will keep getting them but there is no guarantee that will happen. I started Turking in early September and this forum has changed drastically since then. Some people have short term memory problems or something because just a few months ago people in this thread were scrapping to make $20 a day back then. The caveat as always is writers, transcribers, and people with the right quals have always manage to scrape out more than the average turker.

    Yeah, that last captcha was completely impossible for a mere mortal to guess without simply going through the entire alphabet.

    While I'm on here I just wanted to say thanks to all of the people that post in this thread every day. I used to visit HWTF all the time, now I rarely ever do because they can't compete with the volume of HITs posted on this site. Hope you guys check out the Google Rater work. It's not as easy as the HITs we do on Mturk, but it will drastically increase your daily earnings and give you the opportunity to work solely on the HITs that pay well while skipping the $2-$3/hr bulk of the work.

    Today was a slow day, normally I'm doing 20 things at once and don't have time to post. I probably won't be back on for a couple months, I'll see you guys then if you're still around. Best of luck!

    Those people are now the ones making the good money. Personally, the "turnover" of the forum mentioned earlier is irrelevant, because although that may account for some of it, the other part is the fear of change. I have found my own ways to make $100/day, and in September, I was making around $10. Granted, I am turking more than I was before, but not ten times more. I do make money from exclusive qualifications, but there are HITs I do, that almost anyone can do. The best thing anyone can do to make the most on mTurk is to keep turking. Remember that if there were exclusive quals before, there are going to be exclusive quals again.

    I just signed up for this through Leapforce after seeing your last post. All I have left to do is take the test this Friday through the next Friday (5-8 hours), which is supposed to be difficult according to Leapforce, but I'm always looking for extra income avenues. Thanks for the advice, man, and good luck to you as well.
